A fellow Bank Line officer from the 1950’s, Charlie Stitt started the website Bank Line Nostalgia some years ago, using the Webs platform. It is the place to go if you are seeking shipmates or would like to browse a huge number of photos of ships or personnel. You need to register, and to have had a connection with the company, but well worth a look!
